Welcome to Sussex Advocacy Partnership!

If you find it difficult to express yourself, and you don’t have a friend or relative who can support you, an advocate can help make sure your voice is heard.

The Partnership consists of POhWER, Mind in Brighton and Hove, MindOut, Brighton & Hove Speak Out, Sussex Interpreting Services and Impact Advocacy.
